Jama Masjid Mosque.

Looking back at my photos from India, I can't believe I have not yet posted a photo of the beautiful Jama Masjid Mosque in Delhi.

This just goes to show that i have soooo many more photos to post from India, so i'd better get started.

I struggled whether I should post this version, or the black and white version. Therefore I'll put the monochrome shot in the WS. I'll post several more photos of this mosque from different pov's over the next several days.

This was the very very first subject we visited during our India trip, so it was off to a wonderful start! We spent approx 2 hours here walking the site, walking around inside the mosque, walking up on the rooftops, there are so many places to explore in this one location.

Jama Masjid Mosque is one of the largest mosques in India, it was built between 1644-1656. It contains red sandstone and white marble. With its huge court yard, its 3 domes, and 2 towering 120 ft high minarets - this is a beautiful mosque for sure.

I apologize if the colours are too bold, i actually de-saturated them but its still showing up quite red and orange - perhaps its my monitor, not sure. Once again, i'm finding the colours vary greatly depending on which computer i'm posting these photos on. I'm not posting this on my home laptop, so the colours and contrast seem a bit off.

Anyhow, please take a look at the WS for the black and white version, and i'll have many more to show from this amazing subject. thanks for looking!
